Luke Hawkins has been tap dancing since the age of seven where he began training at his mother's dance studio in Northern California. His first professional job came at 8 years old when he played Young Don Lockwood in California Musical Theatre's production of Singin' in the Rain. Since then his feet never stopped moving. Soon after, Luke began training with tap master Jerry Burke and under his mentoring won three national dance competition titles.
After two years of training at the Boston Conservatory, Luke moved to New York and tapped his way into roles in Irving Berlin's White Christmas, City Center Encore's production of No No Nanette, and Xanadu on Broadway. Regionally he has played Huck in Big River, Tulsa in Gypsy (Barnstormers Theatre NH), and Turkey in Johnny Guitar (Speakeasy Stage co. Boston). Internationally, he was the lead tap dancer in the European tour of Magic Of The Dance. He also traveled to Amman Jordan with the New York Song and Dance Co. to perform for the US embassy. Most recently Luke could be seen in Cirque du Soleil's production of Banana Shpeel.
